Walsham-le-Willows is a village in Suffolk, England, located around 4 km southeast of Stanton, and lies in the Mid Suffolk Council District. Queen Elizabeth I granted Walsham-le-Willows to Nicholas Bacon, Lord Keeper of the Great Seal, in 1559.

Because the village is documented unusually fully in surviving records of the time, the Cambridge historian John Hatcher chose to use it as the setting for his semi-fictionalised account of the effects of the mid-14th-century plague epidemic in England, The Black Death: A Personal History (2008).
